This game will help learners understand the global food system, and the impact it has on millions of small scale farmers who struggle as a result of its unfairness.

Working in teams they will learn more about the role of the global food market, multinational companies, food and cash crops, and experience the challenges small scale farmers face first hand. Learners will also find out how the actions of governments, multinational companies and farmers themselves can make the system work better for everyone.
